A Bit About Our Owner…

Tony Willems

Tony, owner of Advantage Remodeling, has been in the construction business for over 35 years. His building interest began as a teen when he excelled at woodworking and metal projects in school. Building something from nothing and then have people enjoy what he built made a lasting impression.

He started working as a sheet metal fabricator and installer for a local heating company, but he could not kick the building bug and started building cabinets and custom furniture in his shop. This work led to building several homes for his family. He studied and passed the required local building contractor’s test and received his contractor’s license. He started his own custom home building business in 1990. He loved working with people to design and build their families homes. He prides himself on being a custom builder, who performs most of the hands on project work associated with building or remodeling your home, himself.

For the past several years Tony held several positions for a local restoration company. He worked as the structure manager, (working with and supervising all crew members). He was also the senior project manager and was in the role of operations manager. This work experience has helped him understand the insurance industry side of construction and enabled him to help families repair their homes after a loss. He has worked with most major insurance companies and their adjusters. He has continued his education in the most current fire, water, and odor restoration knowledge and applied these skills and gained valuable remediation experience.

Tony works with homeowners from plan development to final walkthrough. He enjoys a fast paced work environment and works hard to keep projects on time and within budget.

Outside of work, Tony enjoys spending time with his wife, Kristin, and their daughter, Kacie. They enjoy camping, biking, swimming, and spending time with friends, family, and their Black Lab, Jett.
